Flanders Cox is a red sport of Cox with many of the qualities of Cox's orange pippin, but is easier to grow. The apples are crisp, aromatic and juicy and will keep well if stored. The tree is disease resistant and can be grown happily in the West Country, unlike Cox's Orange Pippin.  Pick late September keeps until February.


Flowering group D (Mid).


M27 is the most dwarfing of all apple rootstocks, producing a tree which will be about the same size as a person standing with their arms slightly spread out (1.2-1.8m). They can be container grown or spaced 1-1.5 apart in a small garden. They need permanent staking and a little extra care with regards to watering and feeding. They start fruiting after two years and considering their size can bare a good yield of apples.


M27 trees are sold as feathered maidens (1 year trees with branch development) pot grown. As a result they can be supplied all year round, but it is best to collect as the postage costs are much higher. On special request M27 trees can be supplied bareroot and thus posted out. Email for more information.
